Harvey Picker, who died Saturday at 92, was a wealthy industrialist who switched from running a leading medical supply company to serving as dean of the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. He later became a medical philanthropist and funded the development of survey methods widely used in America and Europe to gauge patient satisfaction.
