Optical and infrared imaging of a carefully selected sample of radio-loud quasars, radio-quiet quasars and radio galaxies confirms our preliminary results that all these quasars are found in luminous galaxies at the top-end of the luminosity function. The results are not in agreement with the HST data indicating that quasars can be found in galaxies with lower luminosities (LP> Program listing for Wednesday
