During the 1920s he lived in California, both in Altadena and San Francisco. In the latter Sacks had a studio at 1759 Broadway where he fulfilled several portrait commissions. By the 1930s he had returned to Philadelphia and stopped painting shortly thereafter. He died there in May 1973. Member: NA. Exh: PPIE, 1915: SFAA, 1925; PAFA, 1932; Calif. Art Club. In: PAFA.
