from the respective dates on which such

Item 4.  Description of Securities.

      Not applicable.

Item 5.  Interests of Named Experts and
Counsel.

      Certain matters with respect to the
shares of Common Stock being registered
hereunder are being passed upon by David R.
Birk, Esq., whose opinion is filed as Exhibit
5.1 to this Registration Statement.  Mr. Birk
is Senior Vice President and General Counsel
of the Registrant and is the beneficial owner
of 1,093.6 shares of the Registrant's Common
Stock.

Item 6.  Indemnification of Directors and
Officers.

      Section 54 of the Registrant's by-laws
provides as follows:

      54.   A.    The Corporation shall
indemnify, and advance the expenses of, any
director, officer or employee to the full
extent permitted by the New York Business
Corporation Law as the same now exists or may
hereafter be amended.

            B.    The indemnification and
advancement of expenses granted pursuant to
this Section 53 shall not be exclusive or
limiting of any other rights to which any
person seeking indemnification or advancement
of expenses may be entitled when authorized by
(i) a resolution of shareholders, (ii) a
resolution of directors or (iii) an agreement
providing for such indemnification; provided
that no indemnification may be made to or on
behalf of any such person if a judgment or
other final adjudication adverse to such
person establishes that his acts were
committed in bad faith or were the result of
active and deliberate dishonesty and were
material to the cause of action so
adjudicated, or that he personally gained in
fact a financial profit or other advantage to
which he was not legally entitled.

            C.    No amendment, modification or
rescission of these By-Laws shall be effective
to limit any person's right to indemnification
with respect to any alleged cause of action
that accrues or other incident or matter that
occurs prior to the date on which such
modification, amendment or rescission is
adopted.

      Section 721 of the New York Business
Corporation Law (the "B.C.L.") provides that
no indemnification may be made to or on behalf
of any director or officer of the Registrant
if "a judgment or other final adjudication
adverse to the director or officer establishes
that his acts were committed in bad faith or
were the result of active and deliberate
dishonesty and were material to the cause of
action so adjudicated, or that he personally
gained in fact a financial profit or other
advantage to which he was not legally
entitled."  Section 54B of the Registrant's
By-laws includes the foregoing statutory
language.

      The rights granted under section 54 of
the By-laws are in addition to, and are not
exclusive of, any other rights to
indemnification and expenses to which any
director or officer may otherwise be entitled. 
Under the B.C.L., a New York corporation may
indemnify any director or officer who is made
or threatened to be made a party to an action
by or in the right of such corporation against
"amounts paid in settlement and reasonable
expenses, including attorneys' fees," actually
and necessarily incurred by him in connection
with the defense or settlement of such action,
or in connection with an appeal therein, if
such director or officer acted, in good faith,
for a purpose which he reasonable believed to
be in the best interests of the corporation,
except that no indemnification shall be made
in respect of (1) a threatened action, or a
pending action which is settled or otherwise
disposed of, or (2) any claim, issue or matter
as to which such director or officer shall
have been adjudged liable to the corporation,
unless and only to the extent that a court
determines that the director or officer is
fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity
(B.C.L. Section 722(c)).  A corporation may
also indemnify directors and officers who are
parties to other actions or proceedings
(including actions or proceedings by or in the
right of any other corporation or other
enterprise which the director or officer
served at the request of the corporation)
against "judgments, fines, amounts paid in
settlement and reasonable expenses, including
attorneys' fees," actually or necessarily
incurred as a result of such actions or
proceedings, or any appeal therein, provided
the director or officer acted in good faith,
for a purpose which he reasonably believed to
be in the best interests of the corporation
(or in the case of service to another
corporation or other enterprise at the request
of such corporation, not opposed to the best
interests of such corporation) and, in
criminal cases, that he also had no reasonable
cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful
(B.C.L. Section 722(a)).  Any indemnification
under Section 722 may be made only if
authorized in the specific case by
disinterested directors, or by the board of
directors upon the opinion in writing of
independent legal counsel that indemnification
is proper, or by the shareholders (B.C.L.
Section 723(b)), but even without such
authorization, a court may order
indemnification in certain circumstances
(B.C.L. Section 724).  Further, any director
or officer who is "successful, on the merits
or otherwise," in the defense of an action or
proceeding is entitled to indemnification as a
matter of right (B.C.L. Section 723(a)).

      A New York corporation may generally
purchase insurance, consistent with the
limitation of New York insurance law and
regulatory supervision, to indemnify the
corporation for any obligation which it incurs
as a result of the indemnification of
directors and officers under the provisions of
the B.C.L., so long as no final adjudication
has established that the directors' or
officers' acts of active and deliberate
dishonesty were material to the cause of
action so adjudicated or that the directors or
officers personally gained in fact a financial
profit or other advantage (B.C.L. Section
726).

      The Registrant's directors and officers
are currently covered as insureds under
directors' and officers' liability insurance. 
 Such insurance, subject to annual renewal and
certain rights of the insurer to terminate,
provides an aggregate maximum of $50,000,000
of coverage for directors and officers of the
Registrant and its subsidiaries against claims
made during the policy period relating to
certain civil liabilities, including
liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933.

Item 7.  Exemption from Registration Claimed.

      Not applicable.

Item 8.  Exhibits.

      5.1   Opinion and Consent of David R.
            Birk, Esq.

Item 9.  Undertakings.

      (a)   The undersigned Registrant hereby
undertakes:

            (1)   to file, during any period in
      which offers or sales are being made, a
      post-effective amendment to this
      registration statement.      

                  (i)   to include any prospectus
      required by section 10(a)(3) of the
      Securities Act of 1933;

                  (ii)  to reflect in the
      prospectus any facts or events arising
      after the effective date of this
      registration statement (or the most
      recent post-effective amendment thereof)
      which, individually or in the aggregate,
      represent a fundamental change in the
      information set forth in the registration
      statement.

                  (iii)      to include any
      material information with respect to the
      plan of distribution not previously
      disclosed in the registration statement
      or any material change to such
      information in the registration
      statement;

provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i)
and (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the information
required to be included in a post-effective
amendment by those paragraphs is contained in
periodic reports filed by the Registrant
pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are
incorporated by reference in this registration
statement.

            (2)   That, for the purpose of
      determining any liability under the
      Securities Act of 1933, each such post-
      effective amendment shall be deemed to be
      a new registration statement relating to
      the securities offered herein, and the
      offering of such securities at that time
      shall be deemed to be the initial bona
      fide offering thereof.

            (3)   To remove from registration by
      means of a post-effective amendment any
      of the securities being registered which
      remain unsold at the termination of the
      offering.

      (b)   That, for the purposes of
determining any liability under the Securities
Act of 1933, each filing of the Registrant's
annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or
Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that is
incorporated by reference in this registration
statement shall be deemed to be a new
registration statement relating to the
securities offered herein, and the offering of
such securities at that time shall be deemed
to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

      (c)   Insofar as indemnification for
liabilities arising under the Securities Act
of 1933 may be permitted to directors,
officers and controlling persons of the
Registrant pursuant to the  provisions
described in item 6 above or otherwise, the
Registrant has been advised that in the
opinion of the Securities and Exchange
Commission such indemnification is against
public policy as expressed in the Act and is,
therefore, unenforceable.  In the event that a
claim for indemnification against such
liabilities (other than the payment by the
Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a
director, officer or controlling person of the
Registrant in the successful defense of  any
action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by
such director, officer or controlling person
in connection with the securities being
registered, the Registrant will, unless in the
opinion of its counsel the matter has been
settled by controlling precedent, submit to a
court of appropriate jurisdiction the question
whether such indemnification by it is against
public policy as expressed in the Act and will
be governed by the final adjudication of such
issue.

Re:   Registration Statement on Form S-8

Ladies and Gentlemen:

      I refer to the Registration Statement on Form
S-8 (the "Registration Statement") to be filed by
Avnet, Inc.  (the "Company") with the Securities
and Exchange Commission with respect to the
registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended, of 1,000,000 shares (the "Shares") of the
Common Stock of the Company for delivery under the
Avnet's 1995 Stock Option Plan (the "Plan").  The
Shares may be either authorized but heretofore
unissued shares or may be delivered out of the
treasury of the Company.

      I have examined such documents as I considered
necessary for the purposes of this opinion.  Based
on such examination, it is my opinion that up to
1,000,000 heretofore unissued Shares which may be
the subject of options granted under the Plan, when
paid for in accordance with the terms of the Plans
and the options granted thereunder, will be legally
issued, fully-paid and non-assessable under the
laws of the State of New York (the state of
incorporation of the Company).

      I consent to the use of this opinion as
Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement.

                                 Very truly yours,

                                 s/ David R. Birk       
                                         David R. Birk
