The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Hartford has named Briann G. Greenfield as its new executive director.

Greenfield will begin work on June 18, succeeding Executive Director Katherine Kane, who will retire on May 11 after serving about 20 years in the post, the museum said.

Greenfield will arrive in Hartford after working for the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, where she served as executive director since 2014. During her time there, she led the council's development and implementation of new programming and improved its financial stability and operating efficiency, officials said.

She has also served as a history professor and as founding director of the master's in public history program at Central Connecticut State University for 13 years. She earned her Ph.D. and master's degree in American Civilization from Brown University and a bachelor's degree in history from the University of New Hampshire.

The Stowe Center's board of trustees said it identified Greenfield through a nationwide search.

Wheeler Clinic in Hartford has received a $100,000 grant aimed primarily at improving children's dental care and developing best practices for dental and primary care integration.

The money will also support startup dental staffing, purchasing equipment and a community dental outreach and education program.

The grant is among four in Connecticut from The Delta Dental of New Jersey Foundation, which has awarded nearly $1 million this year to 34 nonprofit organizations in New Jersey and Connecticut to increase access, provide education or expand the dental health care they currently provide to children, developmentally disabled persons and senior citizens, as well as to support various community events and programs that promote the importance of good oral health.

The Hartford Foundation received a $50,000 grant from the Travelers Foundation for its Respond-Rebuild-Renew Fund to help meet the needs of individuals and families relocating to Greater Hartford following natural disasters.
