On the history of the concept of supersymmetry:
Gordon Kane, Mikhail Shifman, The Supersymmetric World: The Beginnings of The Theory, World Scientific 2000 (doi:10.1142/4611)
Kane has been arguing that string phenomenology-models of the kind of M-theory on G2-manifolds, notably the G2-MSSM, “generically” predict Higgs particle masses around 120-130 GeV. He stated this in
a few months before the actual detection of the Higgs particle (and its mass of $\sim 125$GeV) at the LHC, and with more details in
a few days before the result was officially announced (a useful informed comment is here).
