On the history of the concept of supersymmetry:

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

• Gordon Kane, String theory and generic predictions for our world – superpartner masses, LHC signatures, dark matter, EWSB, cosmological history of universe, etc, talk at String phenomenology 2011, August 2011 (pdf)

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).

On Yukawa couplings in the G2-MSSM:

and on neutrino masses:
