Near-infrared measurements have been obtained of 30 quasars originally found serendipitously as x-ray sources in fields of other objects. The observations show that the infrared characteristics of these quasars do not differ significantly from those of quasars selected by other criteria. Because this x-ray-selected sample is subject to different selection biases than previous radio and optical surveys, this conclusion is useful in validating previous inferences regarding the infrared colors of “typical” quasars.
