Infrared photometry of four relatively faint (8.5 ≤ V ≤ 11.0) early-type stars at high galactic latitude has been made in the J, H, K, L' and narrow-band M wavelengths. This has been combined with previously published ultraviolet and visible observations to enable a comparison with LTE model atmosphere fluxes. The results imply that at least three of the stars are normal main-sequence B-stars at large distances from the galactic plane.
