I'm looking to determine who created a content type and when. The standard page for a content type does not provide this information.

Can someone direct me to where I can find this information in SharePoint Foundation 2010?

Unfortunately, i dont think there's a property which specifies this information. Using SharePoint Manager ( it doesn't display this info.

good luck

Take a look at the audit logging feature within SharePoint.

PS. I'm not sure, you can reveal the content type creator in the audit logs :)
