Hayden White and his opposition

Greetings! I am working on a paper about how texts are approached and constructed from two opposing theoretical viewpoints. I will be using Hayden White's essay "The Historical Text as Literary Artifact" to argue how similar historical texts are to fiction. What I still need is another noted historian/historiographer who maintains that history is an entirely distinct discipline. Any suggestions who I should use?
