Francis S. Levien, 90, a New York lawyer-industrialist who specialized in the creation of corporate conglomerates, died Thursday at Mount Sinai Hospital. He struck it rich in the late 1930s, when he and a partner won a Delaware case that resulted in the forming of what is now Pepsico. His success as an industrialist grew out of a partnership with Harry E. Gould, a New England paper merchant. They teamed to redeem a marginal steel maker as the country geared up for World War II. Their enterprise, Steel Materials Corp., landed Navy contracts.
