Archacki, a Polish American artist, journalist, publisher, and illustrator, was born in Warsaw, Poland. He came to the United States with his family. They settled in Chicago, IL, where Archacki showed an early proclivity for art and journalism. He worked as sports reporter for Dziennik Zwiaskowy and in 1930 went to New York as head artist for the Brooklyn branch of the paper. In 1931, he began his "Czy wiecie ze" (Do You Know) drawings, and became sports editor of Poland and Czas and, later, of Nowy Swiat.
