Schreiber was born in Brussels, Belgium, his education spanning several European cities before moving to New York in 1928. He was employed by the Works Project Administration between 1936-1939 which allowed him to travel throughout the United States as an artist. When the United States entered World War II, he was commissioned by the US Navy to illustrate posters popularizing the cause.
