Dear Sir or Madam:

RE:  EG&G, Inc., 1995 Preliminary Proxy Material EG&G, Inc.   File
01-5075

     Pursuant to Rule 14a-6 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
attached is a preliminary copy of EG&G's 1995 proxy material.  This
consists of a Notice of Annual Meeting, a Proxy Statement, and a Proxy
Card, all of which pertain to the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be
held on Tuesday, April 25, 1995.  The requisite filing fee of $125 was
previously sent by wire transfer.

     We expect to mail definitive proxy material to our stockholders on
or about March 7, 1995 and definitive copies of our proxy material will
be mailed to the SEC on that date.   

     As you will notice, the preliminary Proxy Statement does not
contain the names and biographies of three of the five candidates
nominated for election to the EG&G Board.  The Nominating Committee is
in the process of making final selection of these nominees and
therefore, at this time, the information is not available.   I have
recently discussed this matter  with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, and I have been advised that this should not delay the date
on which these materials are deemed filed with the SEC.

We would appreciate your earliest action on the enclosed material and
would be most appreciative for your advice by telephone, if convenient. 
Please feel free to call the
undersigned collect at (617) 431-4136 or Murray Gross, EG&G's Vice
President and General Counsel at (617) 431-4135.

                              Very truly yours,

                            AND

                    PROXY STATEMENT 1995























EG&G, INC., CORPORATE OFFICES, 45 WILLIAM STREET, WELLESLEY,
MASSACHUSETTS  02181


<PAGE>
                       PROXY STATEMENT

        This Proxy Statement has been prepared to provide the stockholders
of EG&G, Inc. with information pertaining to the matters to be voted on
at the EG&G, Inc., Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on Tuesday, 
April 25, 1995 at 10:30 a.m., at the Sheraton Needham Hotel, 100 Cabot
Street, Needham, Massachusetts, and at any adjournment of that Meeting. 
The date of this Proxy Statement is March 7, 1995, the approximate date
on which the Proxy Statement and form of Proxy were first sent or given
to stockholders.  EG&G, Inc. is sometimes referred to in this Proxy
Statement as "EG&G" or the "Company."  EG&G, Inc. Common Stock, $1 par
value (the only outstanding EG&G security with voting power), is
referred to as the "Common Stock."

        This proxy is solicited on behalf of the Board of Directors of
EG&G.  You are requested to sign and return your proxy card promptly. 
You have the right to revoke your proxy and change your vote at any time
prior to its exercise at the Meeting by filing written notice with the
Clerk of EG&G or by signing and delivering a new proxy card bearing a
later date.  It is important to sign and return your proxy card.  It
helps to establish a quorum so that the Meeting may be held, and it
permits your votes to be cast in accordance with your directions.

        The expenses connected with soliciting proxies will be borne by
EG&G.  The Company expects to pay brokers, nominees, fiduciaries, and
other custodians their reasonable expenses for forwarding proxy
materials and annual reports to principals and obtaining their voting
instructions.  Due to the limited time available for the solicitation of
proxies, the Company has engaged Kissel-Blake Inc., of New York City, to
assist in soliciting proxies from brokers, nominees, fiduciaries, and
custodians and has agreed to pay Kissel-Blake Inc., $6,500 and
out-of-pocket expenses for such efforts.  In addition to the use of the
mails, certain Directors, officers, and employees may solicit proxies in
person or by use of communications media.  

        The stock transfer books of EG&G will not be closed; however, the
Board of Directors has fixed the close of business on February 24, 1995,
as the record date for determining the stockholders entitled to receive
notice and to vote their shares at the Annual Meeting.  On the record
date, there were _________ shares of Common Stock outstanding and
entitled to vote.  Each share of Common Stock carries with it the right
to cast one vote, with no cumulative voting.  A majority of issued and
outstanding shares constitutes a quorum.  

        The three items to be acted upon by the stockholders are set forth
on your proxy card and each of them is discussed in detail on the
following pages.  Shares represented by proxy will be voted at the
Meeting in accordance with your instructions, as indicated on the proxy
card.

<PAGE>
        The first item on the proxy card is a proposal to fix the number
of Directors at thirteen and to elect five Directors for terms of three
years each.  You are provided the opportunity to vote your shares for
granting, or withholding, authority to fix the number of Directors at
thirteen and to elect the five nominees as a group by marking the
interior of the appropriate box on the proxy card.  Should you desire to
withhold authority to vote for specific nominees, please identify the
exceptions in the appropriate space provided on the proxy card.  Your
shares will be voted as you indicate.  If you sign and return your proxy
card and make no indication concerning Item No. 1 on the proxy card,
your shares will be voted "For" fixing the number of Directors at
thirteen and electing the nominees named in this Proxy Statement.

        The second item is a proposal to amend Article 6 of the Company's
Articles of Organization to provide for the declassification of the
Board of Directors, such declassification to commence with the Annual
Meeting of Stockholders in 1996.

        The third item is a stockholder proposal to recommend that all
future non-employee directors not be granted pension benefits and that
current non-employee directors voluntarily relinquish their pension
benefits.

        With respect to Item Nos. 2 and 3, you are provided the
opportunity to vote for or against adopting the proposals or to abstain
from voting.  Your shares will be voted as you indicate; or not voted if
you elect to abstain.  If you do not make an indication concerning these
items, your shares will be voted "For" Item No. 2 and "Against" Item No.
3.

        Management does not anticipate a vote on any other proposal at the
Annual Meeting.  In the event, however, that another proposal is
properly brought before the Meeting, your shares will be voted in
accordance with management's discretion.

        EG&G's Annual Report to Stockholders for 1994 has already been
mailed to its stockholders or is enclosed herewith.  It should not be
considered either as part of this Proxy Statement or as incorporated
herein by reference.


<PAGE>
                       Votes Required

        The affirmative vote of the holders of a plurality of the votes
cast at the Meeting is required for the election of Directors.  The
affirmative vote of the holders of two-thirds of the shares of Common
Stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote is required for the
proposal to declassify the Board of Directors. The affirmative vote of
the holders of a majority of the shares of Common Stock present or
represented at the Meeting is required for the approval of the
stockholder proposal to be voted upon. 

        Shares of Common Stock represented by executed proxies received by
the Company will be counted for purposes of establishing a quorum at the
Meeting, regardless of how or whether such shares are voted on any
specific proposal.  With respect to the required vote on any particular
matter, abstentions and votes withheld by nominee recordholders who did
not receive specific instructions from the beneficial owners of such
shares will not be treated as votes cast or as shares present or
represented and voting.

                         Item No. 1
                   ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

        The Articles of Organization and By-Laws of EG&G provide that the
number of Directors, not less than three nor more than thirteen, shall
be fixed by the stockholders and that approximately one-third of the
Directors shall be elected each year for terms of three years each. 
There are, at present, eleven Directors of the Company.  The terms of
three of the Directors expire at this year's Annual Meeting; the terms
of five other Directors expire at the Annual Meeting in 1996; and the
terms of the remaining three Directors expire at the Annual Meeting in
1997. Mr. Dean Freed has announced that he will retire from the Board
following the expiration of his term at this year's Annual Meeting. Mr.
Joseph Turley has announced that he will retire from the Board in June
1995.  

        The Board of Directors has declared it advisable that the number
of Directors be fixed at thirteen and has nominated the following
persons, two of whom are currently serving as Directors of the Company,
for election as Directors for three-year terms expiring at the Annual
Meeting in 1998:  
                                       John M. Kucharski
                                       John B. Gray
                                       _____________
                                       _____________
                                       _____________

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE "FOR" FIXING THE NUMBER OF
DIRECTORS AT THIRTEEN AND FOR ELECTING THE FIVE NOMINEES NAMED ABOVE FOR
TERMS OF THREE YEARS EACH.

<PAGE>
        It is intended that the shares represented by proxies will be
voted to fix the number of Directors at thirteen and for the election of
the five nominees (unless one or more of the nominees is unwilling or
unable to serve) for terms of three years each, unless a contrary vote
is indicated on the proxy cards.  The Board of Directors knows of no
reason why any nominee should be unable or unwilling to serve, but if
such should be the case, the persons named as proxies in the Proxy may
vote for the election of a substitute. In no event will shares
represented by proxies be voted for more than five nominees.  To apprise
you of the qualifications of the Directors, we are including information
concerning the nominees and the eight incumbent Directors whose terms of
office expire in 1996 or 1997.

       INFORMATION RELATIVE TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
               AND CERTAIN OF ITS COMMITTEES

        A formal Audit Committee of the Board of Directors was created in
1971.  The present Committee, which met five times in 1994, is composed
of three Directors - Messrs. Goldhammer (Chairman), Gray and Hansen, 
none of whom is an employee of the Company. 

        The responsibilities of the Audit Committee are (1) to recommend
the particular persons or firm to be employed by the Company as its
independent auditor; (2) to consult with the persons so chosen to be the
independent auditor with regard to the plan of audit; (3) to review, in
consultation with the independent auditor, its report of audit or
proposed report of audit, and the accompanying management letter, if
any; and (4) to consult periodically with the independent auditor with
regard to the adequacy of internal controls and, if the Committee so
chooses, to consult with the internal auditors, the Chief Financial
Officer, the Corporate Controller, the Treasurer and other officers and
employees as the Committee may deem appropriate.

        The Compensation and Stock Option Committee of the Board of
Directors, which met three times in 1994, is composed of four Directors
- - Messrs. Tod (Chairman), Turley and Pounds and Ms. Marshall.  The
Committee reviews and approves the salaries and incentive compensation
of the Chairman of the Board, the Chief Executive Officer, the
President, and the Executive and Senior Vice Presidents.  The Committee
also reviews and approves the Management Incentive Plans of the Company
and its subsidiaries, administers the stock option plans adopted by the
Company, and reviews and approves such other employment and compensation
matters as it deems necessary and proper.

        The Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors,
which met one time in 1994, is composed of five Directors - Messrs.
Pounds (Chairman), Rubinovitz, Freed, Hansen and Thompson.  The
Committee examines and defines the Board of Directors' role in corporate
governance, formulates policy to deal with and be responsive to
shareholder concerns, and formulates guidance, for management action, to
deal with evolving social issues, both internal and external to the
organization.

        A Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors was created in
1991.  The present Committee, which met four times in 1994, is composed
of three Directors -  Messrs. Thompson (Chairman), Tod and Hansen. The
Committee establishes criteria for nomination or renomination as a
Director, develops procedures for the nomination or renomination
process, and identifies and recommends candidates for nomination to the
Board of Directors. Any stockholder desiring to submit a candidate for
consideration by the Nominating Committee should send sufficient
biographical data and background information concerning the candidate to
enable a proper judgment as to the candidate's qualifications, together

and Goldhammer and Ms. Marshall.  The Committee reviews the investment
of funds held in the Company's employee benefit plans.

        The Board of Directors also has an Executive Committee composed of

Committee, which acts as needed during intervals between Board meetings,
has been delegated with all the powers of the Board except those powers
which by law, the Articles of Organization or the By-Laws of the
Company, the Board of Directors is prohibited from delegating.


Meetings

        The Board of Directors met eight times in 1994.  All Directors
attended at least 75 percent of the aggregate number of meetings of the
Board of Directors and the committees of the Board on which they
respectively served.

year shall receive 800 shares of Common Stock.  If a Director fails to
attend at least 75 percent of the aggregate number of meetings of the
Board and the committees on which the Director served during the
preceding year, the number of shares of Common Stock will be reduced to
400 shares and no shares will be issued if a Director fails to attend 50
percent of such meetings.  In accordance with the Director Stock Plan,
in February of 1995, each of the ten non-employee Directors who served
as Directors for the 1994 calendar year received 800 shares of Common
Stock, with a fair market value to each such Director at that time of
$11,150. 

        In addition to the foregoing, the Company has a Deferred
Compensation Plan for non-employee Directors.  The Plan provides for an
annual payment to be made by the Company to the eligible Director or his
estate in an amount equal to 100 percent of the Director's annual
retainer fee in effect at the time the Director's service on the Board
ceases due to death, retirement, or resignation.  The annual payments
will be made for the greater of five years or the number of years the
Director served on the Board.

        The Company also has established the EG&G, Inc. Directors
Charitable Contribution Program for certain outside Directors.  To be
eligible under the program, the Director must be an outside director
with no previous employment with the Company and have either been a
member of the Company's Board of Directors as of January 1, 1992 or have
otherwise completed five years of service on the Board.  Under this
program, the Company will contribute, upon the death of an eligible
Director, a total of $1,000,000 to one or more qualifying charitable
organizations named by the Director.  The program is funded through a
life insurance policy on each such eligible Director, with the life
insurance proceeds payable to EG&G.

            BOARD COMPENSATION COMMITTEE REPORT
                 ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION


     The Compensation and Stock Option Committee (Committee) of the
Board of Directors is composed of four independent outside Directors. 
The Committee's report on executive compensation follows. 

Overall Philosophy

      The Company's overall executive compensation philosophy is based
on the premise that compensation should be aligned with and support the
Company's business strategy and long-term initiatives, enhance
shareholder value and be competitive with that offered by comparable
companies.  Under the guidance of the Committee, compensation policies
have been designed which link executive compensation to the attainment
of the Company's specific goals.   These policies also allow the Company
to attract and retain those senior executives critical to the long-term
success of a highly diversified organization by providing a competitive
compensation package and recognizing and rewarding individual
contributions.  The key elements of the Company's executive compensation
are base salary, annual incentive awards, and stock options.

      Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code which became effective
January 1, 1994 generally limits the deductibility of annual
compensation for certain officers to $1 million. It is the general
intention of the Committee to assure that Officer compensation will meet
the Section 162(m) requirements for deductibility.  However, the
Committee reserves the right to use its judgement to authorize
compensation payments which may be in excess of the limit when the
Committee believes such payment is appropriate, after taking into
consideration changing business conditions or the Officer's performance,
and is in the best interest of the shareholders.  The Committee will
review its policy concerning Section 162(m) on a year by year basis.
             
Base Salary

      Each year, the Committee reviews and establishes the base salary
of the Chief Executive Officer based on the Company's performance, as
measured by a combination of factors consisting principally of sales,
earnings per share growth, return on equity, and on a comparison to
executive compensation in other companies as revealed by the  surveys
referred to below.  The Committee also reviews, approves or modifies, as
deemed appropriate by the Committee, a salary plan recommended by the
Chief Executive Officer and the Vice President of Human Resources for
the positions of President and Senior Vice President.  This plan,
developed by the Human Resources staff, is based on the performance of
each such Officer while taking into consideration the Company's
performance as measured by the factors described above.  

<PAGE>
      Two national surveys are used to provide general overall guidance
with respect to compensation levels.  A special study is also conducted
that contains compensation data on approximately 20 companies in the S&P
High Tech Composite Index. The S&P High Tech Composite Index was chosen
because it is comprised of companies in businesses similar to that of
the Company and is one of the indices with which the Company's
cumulative total shareholder return is compared in this Proxy Statement.
The special compensation study was performed by a major consulting firm
utilizing the compensation data contained in their compensation data
bank.  The report shows the average base and average total compensation
for selected Officer positions for companies comparable in size to EG&G,
Inc. Generally, the compensation levels of EG&G Officers are comparable
with those for similar positions within the companies included in the
above-mentioned surveys.

      In view of uncertain economic conditions in the U.S. and
throughout the world, the base salaries of all Officers, upon
recommendation of the Chief Executive Officer and the approval of the
Committee, were frozen from December, 1990 through the end of 1993. 
Officers who were promoted or whose salaries were found to be
significantly below comparable data were eligible for salary
adjustments. The salary freeze was discontinued at the end of 1993.  In
accordance with our policy to pay competitive salaries, the base salary
of most Officers was increased in January 1994.  Mr. Kucharski's base
salary was increased to $650,000 per year in January 1994.  

Annual Incentive Plan

      Each year, the Committee reviews, approves or modifies as deemed
appropriate, incentive plans based on performance goals established for
each operating unit.  Incentive awards are normally paid in cash upon
the completion of the annual audit.  The performance goals for
Headquarters executives are earnings per share growth and return on
equity.  The performance goals for each operating unit are normally one,
or a combination of, the following measurements: sales growth, profit
growth , the operating profit to sales ratio, return on net investment,
and cash flow.  The incentive pool earned  by any operating unit may be
decreased  by up to 50% in the event the Company does not attain its
earnings per share growth goal.  Individual incentive awards are made on
the basis of responsibility and contribution to the operating unit's
performance.

      Because 1994 earnings per share did not meet the established goal
for 1994, Mr. Kucharski was not eligible to receive a 1994 incentive
award.

<PAGE>
Stock Options

      Many studies indicate a correlation between stock ownership and
performance.  Under the Company's Stock Option Plans, stock options are
granted to the Company's senior executives following guidelines
established by the Committee.  These guidelines are based primarily on
competitive industrial practice as revealed by a long-term executive
compensation survey covering a large number of public companies in a
variety of industries in which the Company participates.  The survey
data show that the normal stock option award is a multiple of base
salary.  Beginning in 1991, the Committee began to use the Black-Scholes
option pricing method as the basis for determining the value of the
option grants.  This method takes into consideration a number of factors
including the stock's volatility, dividend rate, option term, and
interest rates to estimate the option's present value.  Mr. Kucharski
was granted an option on 75,000 shares in 1994 based on the survey data
and the application of the Black-Scholes option pricing method.

      Stock options are classified as long-term incentives and are
intended to link the long-term interests of the executive with  those of
the stockholder.  Stock options will provide value to the optionee only
when the price of EG&G stock increases above the option price.  All
options are granted with an exercise price equal to the fair market
value on the date of the grant.

sum of 0.85 percent of the participant's Final Average Earnings (the
average of the employee's base salary for the five consecutive
highest-salaried years out of the last ten years of credited service
with the Company) multiplied by the number of years of credited service
with the Company plus 0.75 percent of the excess of such earnings over
the Social Security Tax Base multiplied by the number of years of
credited service (not in excess of 35) with the Company.  All of the
employees of EG&G, Inc. who participate in the Retirement Plan are
required to either complete five years of service or reach their normal
retirement date before they have a vested interest in the Retirement
Plan.

      The following table sets forth information with respect to
estimated annual benefits under the Retirement Plan, payable upon
retirement to persons in the specified ranges of compensation and years
of service.

                           NOTES 

(1)For the purpose of calculating the amounts shown in the above table,
it is assumed that the participants in the specified ranges retired on
December 31, 1994, and at age 65, and that all payments were made on a
straight life annuity basis.  These payments are not subject to any
deduction for Social Security benefits.

<PAGE>
  
(2)Messrs. Kucharski, Parks, Snow, Williams, and Zane have respectively
29, 18, 6, 29, and 2 years of credited service under the EG&G, Inc.
Employees Retirement Plan; and $150,000 of the 1994 compensation of each
of Messrs. Kucharski, Parks, Snow, Williams, and Zane is covered by the
Retirement Plan.  The reasons for the difference between the amounts
shown in the Summary Compensation Table and the amounts disclosed above
are that  compensation in excess of $150,000 and all incentive payments
and deferred compensation amounts, other than amounts deferred under
savings plans, are excluded in determining the compensation covered by
the Retirement Plan.

Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan

 In addition to the basic benefit plan outlined in the table above,
the Company has created the EG&G, Inc. Supplemental Executive Retirement
Plan (the "Supplemental Plan"), which provides additional benefits for
executive officers.  Officers at the Vice Presidential level and above,
the General Counsel, the Corporate Controller, the Treasurer, the
Assistant Treasurer, the Assistant Clerk, and others designated by the
Board of Directors are eligible to receive benefits under the
Supplemental Plan when they have reached 55 years of age and completed
five years of service.  In the event of a change of control as defined
in the Supplemental Plan, however, participants in the Supplemental Plan
are eligible to receive benefits regardless of age or years of service. 
If a participant dies prior to attaining age 55, but after the
completion of five years of service, the participant's eligible spouse
is entitled to receive a benefit in the form of a 50 percent surviving
spouse option commencing on the date the participant would have attained
age 55.  

 During 1994, the Company charged $1,477,067 as an expense for the
Supplemental Plan and made payments to retired officers and
beneficiaries in the amount of $343,552.  While the Company is not
required to fund the Supplemental Plan, effective April 6, 1989, the
EG&G, Inc. Non-Qualified Benefit Trust Agreement (the "Trust") was
established by and between EG&G, Inc. and The Boston Safe Deposit and
Trust Company.  As of December 31, 1994, the Trust had a balance of
$6,022,104.  The purpose of the Trust is to provide greater assurance of
the receipt of Supplemental Plan benefits.  Amounts held in the Trust
are subject to the claims of the Company's general creditors in the
event of the Company's insolvency or bankruptcy.

 The Supplemental Plan is administered by the Compensation and
Stock Option Committee of the Board of Directors.  The Board of
Directors may amend or terminate the Supplemental Plan at any time;
however, such amendment or termination shall not reduce or eliminate the
benefit payments currently being made or the accrued plan benefit of any
participant.  

<PAGE>
 The Supplemental Plan provides an annual benefit payable at
retirement equal to:

(a) 0.85 percent of average total compensation (as defined below) for
each year of credited service, plus 0.75 percent of average total
compensation in excess of the Social Security Tax Base, less (b),

(b) 100 percent of the participant's benefit accrued at date of
termination and payable at normal retirement age under any
Company-funded retirement plan, plus (c),

(c) The reduction, if any, to the early retirement benefit payable from
any Company-funded retirement plan due to the limitations as set forth
in Section 415(b) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
 
 The benefit payable under the Supplemental Plan, however, shall in
no event be less than (c) above.

 Years of service after age 65 are not counted in determining
benefits under the Supplemental Plan, nor is any actuarial adjustment
made as a result of retirement before or after age 65.  Average total
compensation is the average of a participant's total cash compensation
for the highest-compensated consecutive five years of credited service
out of his last ten years of credited service prior to age 65 (or his
age at earlier termination of employment).

 Messrs. Kucharski, Snow, Williams, and Zane have reached the
minimum age of eligibility for retirement under the Supplemental Plan. 
In combination with the amounts payable under the EG&G, Inc. Employees
Retirement Plan, Messrs. Kucharski, Snow, and Williams would receive
$259,900, $16,573, and $103,386, respectively, assuming they retired on
the last day of 1994 and received benefits in the form of a lifetime
income.  In combination with the amounts payable under the  EG&G, Inc.
Employees Retirement Plan and the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory
Employee Retirement Plan, Mr. Zane would receive $144,121, assuming he
retired on the last day of 1994 and received benefits in the form of a
lifetime income. 

Employment and Other Agreements

 Compensation in the form of salary to Mr. Kucharski is paid
pursuant to a three-year employment agreement with the Company dated
November 1, 1993, automatically renewable for successive 3-year
intervals, which provided for a minimum annual payment in 1994 of
$650,000.  Compensation in the form of salary to Messrs. Parks, Snow,
Williams, and Zane is paid pursuant to one-year employment agreements
with the Company dated November 1, 1993, automatically renewable for

<PAGE>
successive 1-year intervals, which provided for minimum annual 
in 1994 of $334,984, $220,532, $250,016, and $274,976, respectively.

 All of the employment agreements with the named executive officers
contain provisions that provide that in the event of a change in control
of the Company, the employment term shall be extended for a period of
five (5) years from the date of the change of control.  Following a
change in control, if the named executive is terminated without "cause"
or resigns for "good reason" (each as defined in the agreement), the
named executive is entitled to receive a severance payment equivalent to
five (5) years of base salary plus bonuses and  continuation of certain
benefits for five (5) years from the date of termination. 

 Generally, a change in control will be deemed to have occurred in
any of the following circumstances:

1)     the acquisition of 30% or more of the outstanding voting stock of
the Company by any person or entity;

2)     during any period of two consecutive years, persons serving as
directors of the Company and those replacements or additions approved by
a two-thirds vote of the Board, cease for any reason to constitute a
majority of the Board;

3)     the stockholders of the Company approve a merger or consolidation
in which the voting securities of the Company outstanding immediately
prior thereto would end up representing 50% or less of the voting power
of the surviving entity; or

4)     a plan for the complete liquidation or an agreement for the sale
or disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company
is approved by the stockholders of the Company.    

All of the employment agreements with the named executive officers, with
the exception of Mr. Kucharski's employment agreement, contain
provisions that provide that upon termination initiated by the Company
without cause, apart from a change in control situation, each executive
would be entitled to continuation of his or her salary, bonus, and
employee benefits for one (1) year from the date of termination.  Mr.
Kucharski's employment agreement provides that he would be entitled to
the continuation of his salary, bonus, and employee benefits for three
(3) years from the date of termination. 

 In July 1994, the Company entered into an agreement with Mr.
Richard Delio in connection with Mr. Delio's resignation as the
Company's Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.  In
accordance with the agreement, the Company paid Mr. Delio a lump sum
severance payment of $562,510.  


<PAGE>
 In May and August 1994, respectively, the Company entered into
agreements with Mr. Louis Williams and Mr. Elmar Illek, then Company
Vice Presidents, relating to the terms of their separation from the
Company.  Pursuant to the agreements, the Company paid to Mr. Williams
and Mr. Illek lump sum severance payments of $272,646 and $664,000,
respectively.

 The Company has a renewable one-year consulting agreement, dated
January 1, 1994, with Mr. Samuel Rubinovitz, a Director and former
Executive Vice President of the Company.  The Company paid Mr.
Rubinovitz $13,425 in 1994 for services rendered pursuant to the
consulting agreement.

                         ITEM NO. 2

AMENDMENT OF THE COMPANY'S ARTICLES OF ORGANIZATION TO PROVIDE FOR THE
DECLASSIFICATION OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS, SUCH DECLASSIFICATION TO
COMMENCE WITH THE ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS IN 1996.

Item 6 of the Company's Articles of Organization at present provides for
the division of the Board of Directors into three classes, each class
consisting as nearly as possible of one-third of the total number of
Directors, with each class of Directors having a separate or staggered
three-year term of office.  Pursuant to a review undertaken by the
Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors, the Board has
determined that eliminating the classified Board and instead having all
of EG&G's Directors elected annually would best serve the interests of
the Company and its stockholders.  The Board has determined that this
change should be implemented on a prospective basis, commencing with the
Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 1996, so as not to shorten the term
for which any incumbent Director already has been elected to serve. 


<PAGE>
Thus, as proposed to be amended, the revised Articles of Organization
would provide that at each Annual Meeting of Stockholders, commencing
with the Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 1996, the successors of the
Directors whose terms expire in that year shall be elected for a one-
year term.  Accordingly, upon the expiration in 1998 of the terms of the
Directors elected at this year's Annual Meeting, all Directors will be
elected  to hold office for a one-year term.

Accordingly, Management will present to the Meeting a proposal that the
Company's Articles of Organization be amended to declassify the Board of
Directors as discussed above by deleting Item 6 of the Company's
Articles of Organization and substituting therefor a revised Item 6 as
set forth in Exhibit A to this Proxy Statement.

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE "FOR" THE APPROVAL OF THE
PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE COMPANY'S ARTICLES OF ORGANIZATION TO
DECLASSIFY THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS.




                         ITEM NO. 3


STOCKHOLDER PROPOSAL TO RECOMMEND THAT ALL FUTURE NON-EMPLOYEE DIRECTORS
NOT BE GRANTED PENSION BENEFITS AND THAT CURRENT NON-EMPLOYEE DIRECTORS
VOLUNTARILY RELINQUISH THEIR PENSION BENEFITS. 
                        
      Management has been advised that a stockholder (name and address
and Common Stock holdings of proponent will be supplied upon oral or
written request to the Clerk of the Corporation) intends to introduce a
proposal at the Annual Meeting which recommends that all future non-
employee Directors not be granted pension benefits and that curr


THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS' STATEMENT IN OPPOSITION TO ITEM NO. 3


The Company has a Deferred Compensation Plan for non-employee Directors. 
The Plan provides for the payment of an annual benefit to the Director
or his or her estate in an amount equal to the Director's annual
retainer fee in effect at the time the Director's service on the Board
ceases due to death, retirement, or resignation.  The payments are made
for the greater of five years or the number of years the Director served
on the Board.

Management believes that it is in the best interests of the Company and
its stockholders to have capable and experienced individuals serving on
the Company's Board of Directors.  In order for the Company to be able
to attract and to motivate such individuals, it is necessary for the
Company to provide a benefits package competitive with that of other
major corporations.  The benefits offered by EG&G, including the
Deferred Compensation Plan, are representative of those offered by other
large corporations to their outside directors.

With the increased recognition of the link between corporate governance
and the long-term strategic success of a corporation, the demands on the
time, commitment and expertise of individuals serving as directors of a
major public corporation have risen to new levels.  Accompanying these
increased demands, has been a commensurate increase in director
liability and accountability.  The Company believes that it is necessary
to compensate its Directors for their time and expertise.  It strongly
disagrees with the proponent that the providing of benefits to the
Company's outside Directors such as the Deferred Compensation Plan will
cause the Company's Directors to compromise their fiduciary
responsibilities to the stockholders and, in effect, "rubber-stamp"
management policies and initiatives to serve their own self-interest. 
The Company believes that its compensation package to outside directors
not only helps to align the interests of its Directors with those of the
Company but also provides for involved and motivated outside Board
members with the capability and expertise to help create and insure the
long-term growth and success of the Company. 



                TEXT OF STOCKHOLDER PROPOSAL


      "RESOLVED, that the shareholders assembled in person and by proxy,
recommend (i) that all future non-employee directors not be granted
pension benefits and (ii) current non-employee directors voluntarily
relinquish their pension benefits."



           SUPPORTING STATEMENT OF STOCKHOLDER



      "Aside from the usual reasons, presented in the past, regarding
"double dipping", that is outside (non-employee) directors who are in
almost all cases amply rewarded with their pension at their primary
place of employment, and in many instances serving as outside pensioned
directors with other companies, there are other more cogent reasons that
render this policy as unacceptable.

      "Traditionally, pensions have been granted in both the private and
public sectors for long term service.  The service component usually
represents a significant number of hours per week.  The practice of
offering pensions for consultants is a rarity.  Outside directors'
service could logically fit the definition of consultants and pensions
for this type of service is an abuse of the term.

      "But more importantly, outside directors, although retained by
corporate management, namely the C.E.O., are in reality representatives
of shareholders.  Their purpose is to serve as an impartial group to
which management is accountable. Although outside directors are
certainly entitled to compensation for their time and expertise,
pensions have the pernicious effect of compromising their impartiality. 
In essence, pensions are management's grants to outside directors to
insure their unquestioning loyalty and acquiescence to whatever policy
management initiates, and at times, serving their own self interests.


<PAGE>
Thus, pensions become another device to enhance and entrench
management's controls over corporate policies while being accountable
only to themselves.  As a founding member of the Investors Rights
Association of America I feel this practice perpetuates a culture of
corporate management "cronyism" that can easily be at odds with
shareholder and company interest.

      "A final note in rebuttal to management's contention that many
companies offer their outside directors pensions, so they can attract
and retain persons of the highest quality.  Since there are also
companies that do not offer their outside directors pensions, can
management demonstrate that those companies that offer pensions have a
better performance record than their non-pensioned peers?  In addition,
do we have any evidence of a significant improvement in corporate
profitability with the advent of pensions for outside directors?

      "I URGE YOUR SUPPORT, VOTE FOR THIS RESOLUTION."

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE "AGAINST" THIS PROPOSAL.

OTHER MATTERS

      The Board of Directors knows of no other business which will be
presented for consideration at the Meeting other than that described
above.  However, if any other business should come before the Meeting,
it is the intention of the persons named in the Proxy to vote, or
otherwise act, in accordance with their best judgement on such matters.     


                   SELECTION OF AUDITORS

      On January 25, 1995, the Board of Directors selected the firm of
Arthur Andersen LLP, independent public accountants, to act as the
Company's auditors and to audit the books of the Company and its
subsidiaries for 1995.  Arthur Andersen LLP is currently performing
these duties and has done so continuously since 1968.

      Representatives of Arthur Andersen LLP have been invited to the
Annual Meeting and are expected to be present and will have an
opportunity to make a statement if they so desire.  They are also
expected to be available to respond to appropriate questions from
stockholders.

     COMPLIANCE WITH SECTION 16(a) OF THE SECURITIES EXCHANGE ACT OF
1934.

     Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires the
Company's executive officers and directors to file initial reports of
ownership and reports of changes in ownership with the Securities and
Exchange Commission and the New York Stock Exchange.  The Company has a
program in place to assist its officers and directors in complying with
the filing requirements of Section 16(a).  Executive officers and
directors are required by SEC regulations to furnish the Company with
copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.  Based on a review of the
copies of such forms furnished to the Company and written representations
from the Company's executive officers and directors, the Company believes
that during the preceding year its executive officers and directors have
complied with all Section 16 filing requirements.

                         EXHIBIT A                                           



      Article 6 of the Articles of Organization of EG&G, Inc. is amended
by deleting Article 6 in its entirety and replacing it with the
following:

      Meetings of Stockholders may be held within the
      Commonwealth of Massachusetts or elsewhere in the
      United States of America to the extent permitted by
      the By-Laws of the Corporation.

      The Directors may make, amend, or repeal the By-
      Laws of the Corporation in whole or in part at any
      meeting of the Directors by vote of a majority of
      the Directors then in office, except that the
      provisions thereof fixing the place of the meetings
      of Stockholders, designating the number necessary
      to constitute a quorum at meetings of the
      Stockholders, governing procedure with respect to
      the removal of Directors, and affording
      indemnification to Directors or officers may be
      made, amended, or repealed only  by the
      Stockholders.

      The number of Directors which shall constitute the
      whole Board of Directors shall be such number, not
      less than three nor more than thirteen, as shall be
      fixed by vote of the Stockholders or the Board of
      Directors.  During the time periods specified in
      this Article 6, the Board of Directors shall be
      divided into three classes in respect of term of
      office, each class to contain, as nearly as
      possible, one-third of the whole number of the
      Board.  Of the Board of Directors elected at the
      Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 1975, the members
      of one class shall serve until the Annual Meeting
      of Stockholders held in the year following their
      election, the members of the second class shall
      serve until the Annual Meeting of Stockholders held
      two years following their election, and the members
      of the third class shall serve until the Annual
      Meeting of Stockholders held three years following
      their election; provided, however, that in each
      case Directors shall serve until their successors
      shall be elected and qualified.  At each Annual
      Meeting of Stockholders, commencing with the Annual
      Meeting in 1976 through and including the Annual
      Meeting in 1995, the successors of the Directors of
      the class whose terms expire in that year shall be
      elected to serve until the Annual Meeting of
      Stockholders held three years next following (and
      until their successors shall be duly elected and
      qualified), so that the term of one class of
      Directors shall expire in each year.  At each
      Annual Meeting of Stockholders, commencing with the
      Annual Meeting in 1996, the successors of the
      Directors whose terms expire in that year shall be
      elected to serve until the Annual Meeting of
      Stockholders held in the following year (and until
      their successors shall be duly elected and
      qualified), so that, upon the expiration in 1998 of
      the terms of the Directors elected at the Annual
      Meeting in 1995, all Directors shall be elected to
      hold office for a one-year term.  A vacancy in the
      Board of Directors, however occurring, unless and
      until filled by the Stockholders, may be filled by
      the Directors.  The number of the Board of
      Directors may be increased or decreased and one or
      more additional Directors elected at any special
      meeting of the Stockholders or by a vote of the
      Directors then in office. For so long as the
      Directors are divided into classes in accordance
      with the terms of this Article 6, Directors who are
      elected to fill vacancies, whether or not created
      by an enlargement of the Board, shall be
      apportioned among the classes so as to make all
      classes as nearly equal in number as possible. 
      Directors who are elected to fill vacancies,
      whether or not created by an enlargement of the
      Board, shall serve until the expiration of the term
      of his or her predecessor and until his or her
      successor is duly elected and qualified.  No
      decrease in the number of the Board of Directors
      shall shorten the term of any incumbent Directors.          
      A Director may be removed from office (a) with or
      without cause, by vote of two-thirds of the stock
      outstanding and entitled to vote in the election of
      Directors, provided that the Directors of a class
      elected by a particular class of stockholders may
      be removed only by the vote of two-thirds of the
      shares of such class which are outstanding and
      entitled to vote or (b) for cause by vote of a
      majority of the Directors then in office.  A
      Director may be removed for cause only after
      reasonable notice and opportunity to be heard
      before the body proposing to remove him.

      To the fullest extent permitted by Chapter 156B of
      the Massachusetts General Laws, as it exists or may
      be amended, a Director of this Corporation shall
      not be personally liable to the Corporation or its
      stockholders for monetary damages for breach of
      fiduciary duty as a Director, notwithstanding any
      provision of law imposing such liability.
