This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Brian Hunter:

According to Mantle Fielding's "Dictionary of American Painters", Mr. Wack was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1873. He was a pupil of Leon Dabo, Nicholas R. Brewer, H. Salem Hubbell, and Frank Spenlove.

He was a member of New York League of Painters. (I've found other information in the records of the Brooklyn Society of Artists held at the American Art Archives
of the Smithsonian).

Wack became was vice-president of the Brooklyn Society of Artists while Dabo
was it's president. Once Dabo left the BSoA, Mr Wack became the president
for a number of years, starting in 1928. Apparently Mr. Wack became involved
with this organization through his teacher and friend Leon Dabo. The two
artists had their studio's in the Ovington Building in Brooklyn, along with
Stanislav Rembski and Hamilton Easter Field. Wack and Dabo also worked in
Lyme Rock, Connecticut during the summers. Wack is also represented in the permanent collection of the Fort Worth Museum of Art, according to the Catalogue of
Paintings in the Permanent Collection: Fort Worth Museum of Art, published
in 1928.
Wack was also the founder and first editor of "Field and Stream" magazine and was the author of books on camping and outdoor life.
