 I ended up combining Bernt's and Tim's approaches.  The below adds a
 CREATED timestamp in both remember items and buffer-added items.

;; added "created" type
(setq org-log-note-headings
  '((done .  "CLOSING NOTE %t")
    (state . "State %-12s from %-12S %t")
    (note .  "Note taken on %t")
    (reschedule .  "Rescheduled from %S on %t")
    (redeadline .  "New deadline from %S on %t")
    (created .  "CREATED %t")
    (clock-out . "")))

;; for TODOs created in the buffer
(defun pah/insert-creation-date ()
  "Insert CREATED timestamp into logbook"
  (org-add-log-setup 'created nil nil 'findpos
(add-hook 'org-insert-heading-hook 'pah/insert-creation-date)

;; for remember
(setq org-remember-templates (quote (("todo" ?t "* TODO %?\n  :LOGBOOK:\n  - 
CREATED:%U\n  :END:\n" nil bottom  nil)

 Is there a way to get this function to work with remember as well?  I
 tried adding to org-remember-before-finalize-hook, but the marker is
 in a weird state at that point.
