The Pick operating system is named for it's co-creator Richard A "Dick" Pick (d. 19 Oct 1994), who created it in 1965-67 along with Don Nelson.  The Pick operating system was originally specialized for generalized storage of elements in a database.  They called it a generalized information system.

The first Pick licensee was Microdata which began selling systems in 1974 under the Reality brand.  The second was a New Jersey company called The Ultimate Corp which began selling Pick systems in 1979.  In 1981-83 a dozen vendors jumped on the bandwagon when the licensee price fell along with the price of microcomputers.  This Pick implementation is referred to, in the industry, as R83.
