Auerbach was born in Salt Lake City where his father ran a department store. At age 15 he went to Germany to study at J. J. Meier School in Weisbaden, then Lausanne, Switzerland. He then went to Columbia University where he received a degree in metallurgy in 1906. He spent the next five years working with mines in Colorado, but from 1911 on spent his time running the family department store in Salt Lake City.
Auerbach also pursued studies in Utah history and was a poet and song writer.
Although a Jew, his funeral was held at the Salt Lake Assembly Hall of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with Frank W. Asper as organist and Jessie Evans Smith singing at least one solo.
