Abstract: The hypothesis that Wolf-Rayet stars could provide the luminosity and ionization of the central parsec of the Galaxy is explored with infrared spectroscopy in the 3-micron window. The spectra were divided by the spectrum of a reference star to remove atmospheric effects and were plotted on arbitrary linear scales so that equivalent widths could be compared. Incomplete preliminary observation provided no additional evidence for the presence of Wolf-Rayet stars in the Galaxy core.
