Morton Hack, a retired administrator at the Correctional Camp Center at Jessup, died Wednesday at Sinai Hospital after a stroke. He was 70 and had lived on Fordleigh Road.

Services for Mr. Hack were being held today at the Levinson funeral establishment, 6010 Reisterstown Road.

He retired last June, having worked in the office of the state Division of Correction for 25 years. He also had taught accounting.

Earlier, he worked for the Westminster Shoe Co., a family-owned manufacturing business, which specialized in the making of women's shoes that were sewn.

Serving in the Navy in World War II, he was an officer aboard an LST -- a tank-carrying landing ship -- that was in the first wave of the Normandy invasion.

Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of Polytechnic Institute and, with honors, of Johns Hopkins University.

Mr. Hack enjoyed singing and classical music.

He is survived by a son, Steven Kolker Hack of Croton, Ohio; two daughters, Nancie Hack Grossman of Edinburg, Texas, and Joanne Kolker Hack of Santa Fe, Tenn.; a brother, Sylvan Hack of Baltimore; and two granddaughters.
