We have obtained J and K images of radio galaxies with redshifts of up to 3.4, including 3C 41, 54, 124, 194, 256, 257, 265, 294, 326.1, 356, 437, 441, & 454.1, and B2 0902+34. The observations were made using the Infrared Imager (IRIM) on the KPNO 4m telescope. Stellar image sizes (FWHM) are from 0.85 to 1.2 arcseconds, roughly 10 kpc for H_0=50. The limiting sensitivity (3σ in 1 square arcsecond) of the deepest images is approximately K=21 (2.7μJy).
